About the Movie
Charles Bradley: Soul of America charts the extraordinary late-in-life rise of 62-year-old aspiring soul singer Charles Bradley, whose debut album famously rocketed the James Brown impersonator from a hard life in the Brooklyn projects to Rolling Stone magazine's top 50 albums of 2011. This award-winning documentary explores Charles' remarkable journey through abandonment, homelessness and tragedy to critically acclaimed recordings with the masters of modern soul Daptone and Dunham Records. Following Charles through the exhilarating weeks leading up to his album release and world tour, this intimate film explores the heart and soul of the man who enamored and inspired countless adoring fans around the world. Featuring the electrifying and transformative performances that thrusted him into the limelight, Charles Bradley: Soul of America marks Charles' unprecedented triumph over an impossible dream 48 years in the making.
Saw this at SXSW last year. It's an incredible documentary. It has you rooting for Charles the whole way. It really is a truly great film, and believe me when I tell you the music ain't bad either.
An unmissable and inspiring story about the American Dream.
This is the kind of movie that will grab you from the first moment and glue you to your seat. Charles Bradley is truly the embodiment of the American Dream - a man whose talent was hidden by his unfortunate circumstances but through sheer tenacity, was able to break through and live his dream later in life. You'll love the music, the man, and the hope!! Do NOT MISS !
A must see
